The second final cartoon – May 5, 2003

from the Daily Nebraskan

Having retired from the DN once already, this was Round 2 of final cartoons.

There was some rampant speculation about what my final cartoon was going to be, and I really didn’t know. I had been really pleased with my previous retirement cartoon from 2001 and it was going to be tough to follow in my mind.

If I remember right, I was at a party and someone was pressing me to find out what the final cartoon was, so I told her that I wouldn’t tell her what it was, but to place a bet with her friends that it would include dogs and firefighters.

I think I was just telling her that to end that part of the conversation, but when the time came, I thought it would be fun to actually include dogs and firefighters, just in case she really did place that bet with her friends.

  1. what does the PS stand for on the meter-maid dog?

    the most odd thing of all is the placement of a black man in SE Neb. I googled the demographics. Did you know that Lincoln is 97% white. Holy Shit. And less than 1% Asian. That’s such crap. That means their are no Asians for you, only white girls, & that truly is a terrible thing!!!
